This is an amazing, elegant dessert. I tried it out on my family before serving it at a bridal Shower. It is EXACTLY like the Ruth's Chris dessert. Usually I double the vanilla in my baking, but this time I only put 1 tsp (half of what it called for) and it was more than enough. Initially I served it warm - delicious! They licked their bowls! I refrigerated the remainder in a glass bowl and reheated in the microwave the next day to soften it up - again delicious with good consistency. I'd probably reheat it in a saucepan next time, though, to have more control. We served it with a mint leaf on the edge of the dessert cup. So pretty and very delicious! Can't say enough about this easy, awesome recipe!

Love this Love this Love this! I have made this countless of times and everyone loves it. It is simple enough but just remember to be patient and never stop watching. Also I find only using 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla works the best. i find the sugar from the berries are more than a efficient amount of sugar. U can also cook it a little longer over low heat, which makes it a little thicker consistency I have also melted chocolate chips into the custard and added some strawberries..
